The pupil voice groups this term have been undertaking some work about Rights Respecting Schools. They have been learning about the UN convention on the rights for children and trying to become familiar with the articles.
The group working on the respect themed articles took part in various activities to help them understand more about them.
Children have the right to privacy- the children wrote something private on a piece of paper and hid it inside an envelope.
Children have the right to all of the articles of the convention no matter their nationality, religion or background – children drew self portraits with a message saying “Happy to be me”.
Children have the right to be respected and their voices heard- we spoke about what respect means and made arm bands and bookmarks with a respect theme.
Children have the right to their own beliefs – children wrote some of their beliefs in heart templates.
